This Annual Nut Growers Society Summer Tour will feature the Glaser Family orchards.  

It will begin at 8am with coffee and schnecken, provided by Marion Ag Service,  in the midst of a wonderful mature orchard which has been a landmark along I-5 for many years.

The Glaser orchards provide an opportunity to actually see the results of a long history of chipping prunings.  Also, the Glasers have successfully managed drainage issues inherent in their terrain and they are one of the few who irrigate mature orchards.  Other topics that will be addressed include pruning techniques and hazelnut pest control.


Following the Glaser presentations, the tour will take a short trip along I-5 to Albany where they will congregate at the Linn County Expo Center.  There in the Willamette Center more than 50 vendors will have a myriad of hazelnut oriented goods and services available for you to see and discuss.  Exhibitors include the following.
